Negative Reporting on Trump as High as Ever: The media is at war with President Trump and that is reflected in its relentlessly negative coverage of this administration.

Report: White House trying to sneak LGBT activist through committee

(Paul Mirengoff) Earlier today, I reported on President Trump’s re-nomination of Chai Feldblum as EEOC commissioner. Feldblum is an LGBT activist and the architect of the Obama administration’s radical LGBT agenda, including its policy mandating that transgender individuals can use the restroom of their choice. She believes that in almost all c...

Jones Wins: Al Franken Hardest Hit

(Steven Hayward) I might as well get into the “hot take” game. Democrats and their media echo chamber will openly celebrate Doug Jones’s narrow win in Alabama, but inside I’ll bet they are actually disappointed. There is little chance they can hold this seat in 2020 (unless Republicans nominate Roy Moore again). Meanwhile, Jones deprives them of their favorite talking point that Republicans are all drooling knuckle-dragging morons. Worse, it means Al Franken will li...

Alabama Senate race is even, but may be tilting against Moore [UPDATE: Jones Wins]

(Paul Mirengoff) About 85 percent of the vote has been counted in the Alabama Senate race and only a few thousand votes separate the candidates. As I write this, Roy Moore is up by around 5,000 votes. The counties that will deliver most of the as yet uncounted vote are said to be good ones for Doug Jones. That doesn’t mean the precincts in question are pro-Jones, but the smart money seems to be on the Democrat now. UPDATE: Fox News has called the race for Jones. The ...

(John Hinderaker) Five European finance ministers have objected to the GOP tax plan on the ground that it is too favorable to the United States: Finance ministers from Germany, France, Britain, Italy and Spain say they have ‘significant concerns’ about some of the US President’s tax initiatives and fear they could harm the global economy. In a lett...

Alabamageddon

Seldom has an election with so many potential repercussions been so hard to predict.

Heroes: Meet the four cops that jumped on a bomb

Anthony Manfredini. Jack Collins. Sean Gallagher. Drew Preston. While the name of the Fumblewear Bomber will undoubtedly achieve infamy in the days and months ahead, these four Port Authority police officers deserve recognition beyond any achieved by a wannabe terrorist.
